Left untreated Black Vine Weevil larvae can cause serious crop damage. They are one of the most serious pests seen on ornamental nurseries and are a constant threat as adults can arrive on site from any number of sources – including bought-in plants – and will then establish a population.

Once on site, Black Vine Weevil numbers can build rapidly over one or two years, and if not kept in-check, can cause considerable damage to nurseries.

Nemasys-L is a curative treatment of microscopic nematode worms, that once applied will seek out Vine Weevil larvae in the soil and compost to enter and release a small pellet of bacteria to kill the host after a few days.

The parasitic worms begin to reproduce and release several thousand more juvenile infected nematodes able to find and further kill weevil grubs.

Other benefits of Nemasys-L include:

  • Active at low temperature (5-15C) providing control when pest is active.
  • Simply applied as a drench or spray.
  • No pest resistance issues.
  • Compatible with many chemical pesticides or integrated pest management (IPM) systems.
  • Natural product – safe for crops, users, consumers, and the environment.
